Just bought the sub to replace a 5 year old Infinity reference 10" that was good in it's day but started to get muddier in the last few years. I was down to this or the JL w3 and chose this over the JL as it was cheaper by $60 and was perfect for my needs since I'm running a PDX-5 which puts out only 300watts for the sub. The will get louder and hit harder and could handle more wattage but did not seem as responsive as the G2. Plus, with the G2 having a max 300watts, I know I've got it playing at a optimal level and it sounds awesome. Very tight, clean and quick in a .65q/in sealed box. Perfect for SQ users, which I am as I have it blended with Focal 165 KRX2's comps in the front, Focal 165 access in the rears and Alpine w505 HU. Great value sub for SQ...I would highly recommend it if what I just described is what you are looking for.
